Innovative Skin Care Products to Make You Look Younger – Dr. Motykie Featured on the Marie Show

The Marie Show featured a talk on this subject by Dr. Gary Motykie, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, California!

Genetic composition of each human being is unique, which also influences their skin type. However, the current condition of the skin is primarily determined by how an individual takes care of the body and skin. Skin cleansing is very important, and should be performed on a daily basis. Cleansing helps skin to exfoliate, which improves cell turnover, opens skin pores and allows for greater absorption of skin care ingredients.
Skin can exfoliate with gentle physical massage and it also occurs naturally when enzymes eat away the dead skin cells from the epidermis. Skin care products can sometimes prove to be very expensive, costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars. However, if a person is well informed about the right ingredients, he or she can attain the same results at a much lesser cost.

Important Contents in Anti-aging Products

Many skin care products contain DMAE because of its well-known effectiveness in reducing the signs of aging. DMAE provides protection against skin cell damage that may occur due to direct sun exposure or pollution. This ingredient also stimulates collagen and appears to firm skin on contract. One of the products containing DMAE is The Best of Perricone, which is available at a market price of $95.
Hyaluronic Acid
This is a natural substance found in human body that stimulates collagen and maintains skin elasticity and shape. It is also an important antioxidant and moisturizer. FDA approved dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are based on hyaluronic acid. It is also a part of several anti-wrinkle creams. Products containing hyaluronic acid include Peter Thomas Roth Viz-1000, which is available at $65, and Fresh Rose Hyrdrating Gel Cream, which is available at $42.
Argireline works on the same principle as Botox, though it cannot provide such strong results as Botox. Unlike Botox, this ingredient is applied as a skin cream on the wrinkled areas. Argireline works by way of inhibiting neurotransmitters, which causes the shriveled facial muscles to relax, leading to reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. Products such as First Aid Beauty (FAB) Dual Repair Face Cream, priced at $44, and First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Eye Cream, priced at $40, contain Argireline.
The growth of proteins such as collagen and elastin in the body is promoted by Matrixyl. These proteins help keep the skin healthy and youthful looking. Once the depletion of collagen and elastin takes place in the body, wrinkles and sagging skin begin to occur. Products such as Boscia Bright White Mask, available at a price of $38, and Hourglass Fluid Makeup, available at a price of $60, are based on Matrixyl.
Tried and True Retinols
Skin care products containing this ingredient include Kate Somerville Hydrating Face Serum, Philosophy “Help Me,” Dr. Brandt R3P Cream and Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum.
Facial Rejuvenation with Stem Cells
Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers can help stimulate skin collagen to restore its shape and reduce wrinkles. However, these fillers can do very little to enhance the skin tone and texture. A non-surgical stemcell facelift is an effective approach that provides a combined impact by restoring shape and elasticity of the skin as well as improving the tone and texture of the skin at the same time. Unlike most procedures, this technique actually promotes renewed tissue growth as well.
The procedure involves drawing a small volume of blood from the patient’s body. The doctor isolates platelets by spinning this blood in a centrifugal device. Once the platelets are activated, they release growth factors that have the potential to heal damaged skin. These growth factors are injected into the affected areas of the face, which activates the multi potent stem cells to grow new tissue. The patient achieves a renewed, younger looking skin. The effects with a stemcell facelift may last for nine months to two years in most cases.

Dr. Gary Motykie, a board certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, addressed this topic on the Marie Show!

Looking young and attractive is an innate desire of every human being. Some of the latest cosmetic treatments are helping people achieve their aesthetic goals without the need for surgery. Some people are keen to following a diet that can support their anti-aging efforts naturally. There may be no problem is following such diets for general well-being and anti-aging benefits as long as it is done in consultation with a healthcare professional. Such a natural approach can be pursued along with non-invasive cosmetic treatments for satisfactory results.

Diet Containing Antioxidants

Advocates of natural remedies believe that a diet enriched with antioxidants can provide safe and effective results for a person’s general health and appearance. Natural foods that are high in antioxidant content may be taken regularly to receive maximum benefit. Some of the popular foods that contain antioxidants include raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. In beans, kidney beans, white beans and garbanzo beans are rich in antioxidants. Artichokes and prunes are also rich sources of antioxidants.
Antioxidant supplements that can be used to reinforce the diet include milk thistle extract, which has been recommended by naturopaths for several hundred years as an effective health supplement. Bacopa extract is an important free radical scavenger. The famous Indian herb called “ashwagandha” can help boost the immune system. Green tea and turmeric extracts are also rich in antioxidant content.

Protandim with Nrf2

Protandim with Nrf2 is a key anti-oxidant compound. It combats oxidative stress and helps in regulation of the body organs. Nrf2 is essentially a protein messenger that binds with DNA. It is believed to a master regulator of the aging process followed by the body, and supports the fight against oxidative stress. Nrf2 tells the cells to perform their designated functions.
When it is activated, the Nrf2 compound enters the nucleus of the cells and induces up-regulation of the ‘survival genes.’ This gene helps cells survive against the free radical stress. Nrf2 also down-regulates the specific genes that may promote fibrosis and inflammation to enable the body organs to perform at optimal levels.

Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat.

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither is cool by us. That’s exactly why we developed CoolSculpting. Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.

The Cool Solution is the More Natural Solution.

Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Totally uncool. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.
